    I may turn into a snowbird when I retire and spend 4-6 weeks in the south after Christmas. I really do like having all four seasons! (I'm just teasing you back for all the pictures you Floridians posted)

    Take care, have fun, and do good!

    Tease away. We deserve it.[​IMG] Plus as the old saying goes don't dish it out if you can't take it.

    I do miss fall up north. The first chills, the leaves turning color, and the first snow. All good stuff. I can just live with winter. Snow is fun for a day or two.

    Dont think for one second that most of us did not love the winter snows..
    Try this list

    NY city china town and little italy. little japan way up town.
    Macys christmas parade
    rockefeller center ice rink
    The giant toy store from home alone 2.
    The windows of the large department store with moving decorations.
    ther is no end to the beauty of the states farthur north

    But it is not fun to admit it [​IMG]

    But dont forget all the other cool things we have too!!! Like the insurance crisis due to hurricanes, a totally crashed real estate market with some of the highest foreclosure rates in the nation, extremely low median wages compared to the rapidly increasing cost of living, a rapidly disappearing waterfront (the heart and soul of old florida) being gobbled up by retiring New Yorkers, and we have virtually no efficient public transportation available even though gas prices have more than doubled!!! God I love Florida!!![​IMG]

    I'm just sayin...the grass aint EVER greener!

    The only thing I miss about living here in Florida is the big city (like Philadelphia). Nothing like it down here.[​IMG]

    Yeah, gotta miss all that "brotherly love"... [​IMG] I love Philly for its history and beauty, but the crime is totally out of hand... but that's another topic, another thread.

    Ya know Meowey, I read that and laughed. [​IMG] My son is coming home for Christmas from college too, but if he even fills the wood box and stays home for even one night, I would be very suprized. Them young bucks are, well, young bucks. [​IMG]
    Steve, in your first picture, aren't your pickup tail lites on? Its been a few days since I saw that, I should have jumped right on it, but if indeed they were on, I reckon you figgered that out the next mornin. [​IMG][​IMG]

    When we go north we stay in the suburbs of the large citys so the crime is not a factor unless one is dumb enough to go where one should not.
    We also have the choice of living in places from the millionares row in miami to the mobile home park next to scotty.
    Controll the overhead to compensat for uncontrollable expenses.
